Happy 4 month birthday, Trista!!

Trista- you are FOUR months old today!!!!

What are you up to these days?
  • You have learned to grab - you are most interested in your own hands

  • You smile when I talk to you and when I smile back at you

  • You turn to look at us when you hear our voices. Especially for mommy

  • You are so incredibly long

  • You weigh 9 pounds, 7 ounces and are in the 3rd percentile still

  • You are wearing 0-3 months size clothes and a size 1 diaper

  • You still like to eat about every 2.5 to 3 hours. You still get up in the middle of the night, but usually only once

  • You like to watch your big brothers when they are acting goofy

  • You are really starting to like your swing. It puts you right to sleep!

  • You like to ride in the car (most of the time)

  • You still love your bath and just chew on your little hands

  • Your little head is getting stronger and you can hold it upright for a good 15 seconds

  • You really like to arch your back like you are about to try and roll over

  • You've just recently found your voice and you like to talk, talk, talk

  • In the past 4 months you have been admitted to Children's Hospital 5 times

  • You are such a snuggle bug and love to be looking over mommy's shoulder

  • You are still on the Alimentum formula, but we hope to switch you over to something cheaper sometime soon :)

  • You still sleep in mommy and daddy's room in your bassinet right next to Mommy. Mommy cannot even imagine putting you in your room right now!

  • You have been able to stay home with Mommy for these past 4 months. Next week, Mommy will return to work and will miss you terribly!

  • You have pretty blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair

  • In the sunlight, you look like you have totally red hair

  • You are starting to get some rolls on your arms and legs which I LOVE to see!
  • Mommy calls you "Sunshine", Talan calls you "Trissa" and Daddy calls you "Baby Girl"

  • You are our miracle and we have never felt as blessed as we have since we've had you! Happy 4 month birthday!

    p.s. Avery just seems to always be stuck in that 3rd percentile....It's so stressful.....but I just recently found out that for his height he is EXACTLY where he should be in weight.....He's in the 50th percentile on that chart :0)

    I wish you lived closer!!

    We have some ready to feed alimentum and have not been able to find anyone nearby who can use it :0(
